Full- and part-day tutor-led courses for staff and students of the University of Edinburgh.
Most courses combine tutor demonstration and workbook-based practical exercises. They usually run for three hours or less, but some last a full day. Courses are delivered by IS staff with specialist subject knowledge.
See our Taught options by subject page for details.
Workbooks and handouts used on the course are yours to keep. People within the University can also download them with the course exercise files from our documents catalogue, and print them for individual study or group use. This may be useful if you prefer to study at your own pace or are not available to attend taught courses on the scheduled dates.
Courses run in the Meeting and Training Suite on the first floor of the Main Library on George Square, and in the James Clerk Maxwell Building at King's Buildings.
Courses are open to staff and students of the University of Edinburgh, and are free. When you book via MyEd, you can only see courses that you are eligible to attend.
Staff and students can book through our Taught options by subject page or go directly to the MyEd Event Booking channel.
If you are no longer able to attend, please cancel your place through the My Bookings option on the MyEd Event Booking channel. Our courses are often fully booked, and we may be able to offer your place to someone on the waiting list.
Please give at least 24 hours notice of cancellation. Note that repeated failure to cancel a place may result in a restriction in your ability to book.
Our courses are frequently fully booked. If you do wish to attend, please add your name to the waiting list. If there is a cancellation, you will be given a confirmed place.
For our more popular courses, we often invite people from the waiting list to come along on the day. If not everyone turns up, you may be able to take the place of a 'no-show'.
Note that if you have booked a place on a course, please ensure that you attend in good time, otherwise your place may be given to someone from the waiting list.
